First things first, this is a stunning hotel. The rooms are lovely, the bathrooms perfect, the service exemplary.
The breakfast was outstanding, delivered to our room with no tray charge, which makes a nice change.
The only problem that I had was that the room was far too warm. Admittedly it was an unseasonably warm weekend when we stayed, but the lack of any sort of temperature control in the room means you are rather at the mercy of somebody else's idea of a pleasant temperature. Due to this we had to sleep with the windows open which meant a poor nights sleep due to the traffic noise and people out in the town center. Worth bearing in mind if, like me, you prefer a cool hotel room in which to get a good nights sleep.
